#2577988 What's with the "giving players hamster names" obsession?

Posted by Son of a Wing on Yesterday, 01:52 PM

Soooo you don't like posts like this then...lol It still hurts to read...

 

 

I hate Franzen anyway, and I especially hate him on the top line.  Nyke should be there and that is where I am starting him.

 

Nyke - Dats - Z

Weiss - Leggy - Alfie

Fish - Tinky - Abby

Franzine - Barbie - Miller

(Andy - Ferraro - Dirty Harry)

 

Kronner Big E

Smitty - UFA (Morris)

Diesel - UFA (Mitchell)

Laser

 

Ugh (Howard)

Vokoun

 

That's 24 players with Glenny and Jurx stating GR.  Trading Kindl (no so) Fire and Almost Almqvist for a couple of picks.  If you feel the pinch of a lower cap, then Andy can be packaged as well, or maybe sign bit cheaper D-man instead of one of Mitchell or Morris. Unless you'd want to roll the dice on Marchenko and only sign Morris.

 

This was a great rant...lol

 

Not only do I log onto LGW at least once per day and have never heard Callahan referred to as Dirty Harry, but LGW isn't meant to cater exclusively to hardcore forum posters. Nicknames are supposed to make it easier to discuss the team, not to prove how funny and clever you are. Making up nicknames that no one else uses is obnoxious and unnecessary. Watch...

 

It looks like Yellow Mustard is going to miss some time after catching that elbow last night against the Sabres. Its really bad timing too, because our defense already thin with Big Poppa out with a concussion and Bandit serving his 5 game suspension. I would say this forces us to call up someone from GR, most likely Billy the Kid or The Player Formerly Known As Steve. We might be in trouble on the back end until we get some regulars back, since this leaves the Boogeyman as our #1 defenseman. And you know what that means!!!!

 

Boogeyman - Hot Topic

Heebie Jeebies - Dances with Wolves

My Little Pony - Agent Orange

Depends on what the alternative is.  I think I'd much rather hear those names than professional wrestler nicknames or nicknames that make a player sound like an American Gladiator. 

 

Teemu "Lazer" Pulkkinin.  No thanks. 

 

Luke "The Glenemy" Glendening.  Not a chance.

 

Brendan "Motor City" Smitty.  Yes please. 




#2578042 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Posted by puckloo39 on Yesterday, 05:28 PM

Good thing Cole speaks English, so he could tell Z that Benn said "sorry, man". Benn apparently was unable to form that thought into a sentence to tell Z himself.

 

Cole just looks like a good ol' hockey dude.  I think I like him.  ^_^




#2577860 Pulkkinen sent back to GR

Posted by Buppy on Yesterday, 01:07 AM

I think some people just quote things straight from a cliche book. Say what they think seems like it should be true rather than doing any actual analysis.

 

He has the best shots/60 on the team, 10th best among all forwards in the league in fact (and 4th best 5v5 ZS adj.). The % of his shot attempts blocked is a little on the high side, but not terribly so (and having a shot blocked does not necessarily mean he didn't get it off quick enough). He's not really missing an unusual amount of shots either, so I'd say his aim is fine. The low shooting% is probably from poor shot quality (I would guess Babs has told him to just shoot the puck whenever he can). He's also had a few shots that have gotten past the goalie but just didn't quite make it in. The stats could be skewed by the small sample size, but that goes for the negative ones as well.

 

He doesn't need to work on getting his shot off.

 

Biggest need for him to work on from what I've seen is working with his teammates. Seems often to be unprepared when the puck gets to him, especially on the PP. Needs to work on beating NHL caliber players too. Unfortunately, he can't do either that well in the AHL and we have better options now. But at least he gets to be a major player in GR, and hopefully have a nice playoff run. Next year will be his opportunity to take his game up a notch.

#2577762 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by kipwinger on 02 March 2015 - 05:54 PM

Quincy is hurt right now...ankle issues...they had said may require surgery. 
 
For the time being he likely remains out.


He's expected back this week and the doctors said he could wait until the off season for surgery. Expect Quincey back in the lineup where he belongs.

He's been cleared - intends to put off surgery, if he can.

#2577624 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by kipwinger on 02 March 2015 - 02:05 PM

I like marchenko but I think he'll be the odd man out

 

Why?  Part of the reason we didn't have to go big at the deadline is because Mike Babcock wanted "Marchenko to be our deadline acquisition".  He's up for good.  And they're not going to put him with another righty.  And if they're smart, they're not going to put Zidlicky in the top four.  So I don't see how else it works.

If Esteef were here he would approve of this logic.

Damn, I leave the board for an hour and the place has gone bat s*** crazy.

Let's take it off the playground and back to respectful trade discussion. Points have been stated, it's getting heated, keep it under control please. The Wings making a trade is almost as rare as the Winter Olympics at this point, let's keep it friendly.
